  Gues what - they didn't even have info about Zork on the activision page. That sais it. They won't - ever - make another game. Jeez, Zork's continuality depends on us now...
  Well; it could have been worse: they might have made a game that was about Zork but sucked. Anyway: >:(

Yeah, a while back when I was looking at fan sites, they said I could download ZTUU off of Activision's site. Couldn't even find a reference to Zork, other than copyrights for RTZ-ZGI and ZN patch.

Annoying, isn't it? There's gotta be a company out there for Zork...

Hey, I met theese great people from the original teams of N and GI; one of them thought activision would still like the idea ;-), and give fundings. He might even be 'persuaded to join, , '... LOL.

lol, JOIN cool, that would REALLY be funny...

getting an old school team member from Nemesis and GI on our team, that would surely give us some recognition!

Interesting. (though I thought Zork IV was Zork Zero - or was it Enchanter..)

(Enchanter. Zork Zero should be considered Zork 0, and it was also the last text game of the series (not counting ZTUU.) But Enchanter wasn't (I don't think) part of the Zork series until BZ came out, which linked the two series.)

Activision just pisses me off...

Actualy I remember reading somewhere, from one of the 'Implementors' that the enchanter series was supposed to be  Zork IV,V,VI in that they are in their own little timeframe in the G.U.E. that no other games encroach on.  (Not like this really matters, just thought I'd post it).
